A MAN once dubbed one of ‘Britain’s dumbest burglars’ is back behind bars after his latest victim brought him to justice by posting CCTV images of him on Facebook.

Two years ago Jamie Sharp, 28, was jailed after he stole a Porsche sports car and filmed himself boasting at the wheel - only to crash it into a wall and end up trapped in the vehicle.

On Friday, December 22 he was back before Gloucester Crown Court to admit burgling the home of a mum-of-four in Hardwicke, near Gloucester, and taking her car.

Unbeknown to Sharp, the woman’s neighbour had a CCTV camera - and when it was checked there were good quality images of him on it, the court was told.

The victim posted the pictures onto Facebook and received numerous messages identifying Sharp - mostly because people had seen him on a TV show called Britain’s Dumbest Burglars following publicity of his Porsche crash in 2015.

Sharp, of Linden Road, Gloucester, who has already been recalled to prison for breach of his parole, was jailed for a total of four years and four months after he pleaded guilty to burglary, theft of a Vauxhall Zafira and driving while banned.

Prosecutor Richard Posner said the victim, a single mum who had only recently moved into Springfield, Hardwicke and on October 19, and her children were all in bed when Sharp broke in.

She woke at 7am to find the front door ajar and her car missing. Her iPad was missing from the house and other property she had left in the car, including her handbag, were also gone.

Her disabled older son’s medication was also missing.

“She was obviously frustrated at the defendant’s conduct and circulated CCTV images of him on social media to see if anyone could identify the defendant moving in and out of her property,” said Mr Posner.

“He was quickly identified. The car was found parked in Stroud.

“The police also looked at the CCTV from another house nearby in the same road and the defendant was in due course arrested.”

Jason Coulter, defending, said Sharp had ‘very serious drink problems’.

“There are clearly underlying and deep seated reasons for that which he is almost physically unable to bring himself to speak about,” he said.
